So for months now we’ve been hearing all this hype about the amazing Covergirl Capitol Collection inspired by The Hunger Games: Catching Fire. We waited patiently, hoping that we might get some lip gloss with Katniss’s face all over it it or some colorful eyeshadow that only Effie Trinket would wear. But now that it’s here, we’re hugely disappointed. Who cares about some Lipslicks Smoochies Sizzle Gloss ($5.99), or a pot of eye shadow? I mean, how does “smoochies” have anything to do with The Hunger Games anyway? Yeah, it’s cool that you can get a tutorial on how they did the makeup in the movie and what products they used, but half of them were released before this “collection” hit anyway.
And what’s up with the nail polish? Why doesn’t it say Capitol Collection on it? We should have been consulted in Covergirl’s plans for these designs because we would totally have gone in a different direction. What do you think about the new collection? Let us know in the comment section below.
If we made you even a little curious about the makeup used in the actual movie, click through the slideshow to find out which products represent District 1, the luxury district, and District 4, the fishing district.
